Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. You should continue clindamycin for 7 days and you can use Mupirocin ointment to apply on the ulcer. If the ulcer does not heal in a few days, you should visit a breast surgeon and get it evaluated. The surgeon might order a biopsy if it is not healing.

Hoping for the best.
